Sheesh, that thread title only just fits.

Not that I particularly care about the charisma quotient of either man, and no amount of photos of Federer in Adonis mode posted on this board by his fans will convince people that he is charismatic. I just have a feeling that Fumus would declare a cabbage to have more charisma than Roger if it developed the startling ability to beat him in important Slam matches and tournament finals.

Where does that leave Fat Dave, though? Or for that matter, Mellow Jiro?

I wouldn't be surprised if Fumus were to declare that the cabbage did indeed have more charisma than Federer. At this rate, a box of rocks will do-anything to begin another "humorless Federer" thread.

The undisputed sex god of the ATP. I've seen women tremble at the knees when confronted by his manly charms many times.

Who is Burgsmuller? He's a no show on the ESPN. :sad:
How can you ask such a question when he's the most charismatic player on the tour! ;)

Sampras had about as much charisma as a baked potato.

Burgsmuller rocks! He has more charisma in his left testicle than Federer has in his whole body. Just the other day, I was having a conversation with Burgsmuller's left ball, and it was just so charming. It had this quiet charisma, you know, that confident, witty aura. I felt like it was holding back at times though. I love a ball of mystery, that only added to its charm.

Hello, I think we're all forgetting the King of Charisma, Jerome Haehnel.

I dunno, I think there's charisma in the way Federer conducts himself.

However, Nadal (who I think has more charisma ON court, but maybe that's a language thing, maybe some non-fanatical spaniard can help?), Safin and Roddick have plenty more charisma.

Federer is kind of the boring guy who always wins. Like Stephen Hendry or Michael Schumacher.

It all comes down to personal opinion. Plus we don't really know these guys, we only know how they act on court. Roger might not be boring off court at all, and Rafa might be really shy off court (at least Roger says he is), who knows. The way one acts on court is not necessarily indicitive of their real personality.

did anyone see the Facing Federer documentary? Perfect to show you that quiet Henman is much more charismatic than utterly boring Federer. do you remember that scene wheer they were playing pool?
